A luxury return for the Canaries?

On the side of Nantes, this week was notably marked by the mediatized arrival of the Egyptian striker from Galatasaray: Mostafa Mohamed. The center-forward arrives in Ligue 1 to play the leading roles for the Canaries, and is already arousing interest among supporters. In this crucial attacking position, the transfer window does not seem to be over for the Canaries, but an unexpected player could well come to spoil the party.

Winners of the Coupe de France, 9th in the last edition of Ligue 1, endowed with a high quality workforce, the people of Nantes are going through a prosperous period in many respects in sporting terms.. Antoine Kombouaré wants to be confident and smiling since the beginning of the year, and savors the fact of having in hand a formation capable of fighting among the best. Faced with the challenge of the European Cup back at La Beaujoire this season, FC Nantes hopes to be shielded in terms of possibilities at each position in order to overcome any unanticipated problem. At centre-forward, the return of a player could offer luxury choices to the French technician.

A place to take?

Behind Mostafa Mohamed, no striker has so far been clearly identified as the worthy replacement for the position. Whether Boulaye Dia was mentioned earlier this week again, the track seems to have been forgotten in favor of other targeted players in the future. Even before recruiting, the club could however trust a player already well known in Nantes: Bridge Ndilu. Aged 22 since January 21, this young striker comes out of a disappointing loan from Rouen. A single goal scored, a place difficult to acquire, his profile does not seem to be that of the savior for a club qualified in Europe until then.

However, despite a certain margin possessed by Nantes at time T, no new attacker is today tracked to make the welding in attack. As rightly recalled Nantes grandstand in his regard, the beginnings of Bridge Ndilu were remarkable among young people. Author of four goals and two assists during four meetings with the young Canaries, the one who knew the U19 selection of the France team could take advantage of the only presence of Guessand and Mohamed to revive. If everything is not yet acquired for him this season, a place certainly remains to be played in the rotation.
